  • . Cincinnati OH

    Likes: This product is lightweight and durable. The material is conducive to reflecting body warmth. Plenty of padding for a computable night in the woods. A great product for the price.

    Dislikes: Invest in straps for storage and for keeping it lashed to your pack.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Warm and comfortable.

    Dislikes: Much bigger and bulkier than I thought it would be... :-(

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: I like the insulation, heat retention, light-weight and durability of the product.

    Dislikes: It's a bit bulky.

  • Michael D. G. Phoenix, AZ

    Likes: Rolls up nice and tight and is light as a feather,you hardly know its back there.It combined with a Therm-a-Rest Sol-lite eggshell pad underneath,the cold ground is an afterthought.

    Dislikes: Nothing!

  • John H. Chandler AZ

    Likes: This is a very warm pad. It's pretty light and even semi-comfortable for a foam pad. Yes, it's bulky, but that's just the nature of foam sleeping pads. In return, I get something that should last for years without maintenance.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Matthew C. COLUMBUS OH

    Likes: Excellent backpacking pad. Lightweight. My son used this on a trip in November (temps in the 40's, raining) and slept in tarp lean-to. Stayed warm all night.

    Dislikes: No complaints.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: The price was excellent. The pad was very nice and comfortable.

    Dislikes: It was a little too heavy and not compact, but it would be great for camping with family on road trips.

  • Ryan H. redding CA

    Likes: Very comfortable, lighter than what it looks like. Warm and thick.

    Dislikes: Little Bulky for my taste, make sure you check it out in store or draw out the measurements.
